COCs and ESCs

Information on how to use the Electrical Certificate of Compliances (COCs), Electrical Safety Certificate (ESCs), and other Board certification documents.

How to use the form

The Electrical Certificate of Compliance and Electrical Safety Certificate forms are only available online. They can be completed and saved on your computer or tablet. 

  • Click on the name of the form you require in the list below to open it
  • Tab through the fields and enter information using your keyboard
  • When you save this form your additions will also be saved

Note: You need Adobe Acrobat Reader(external link) installed on your computer to use these forms.

Saving your forms as PDF files will also allow you to store them in My COC/ESC's once logged in. See further down for details.

You can protect your PDF certificates from further change by setting editing permissions to none when creating a document permissions password. Note that a document open password is not required / helpful under normal circumstances.

You need additional software to protect PDF documents. There are a variety of websites, free software and licensed applications capable of locking a PDF document. Talk to your IT adviser if you need assistance.

Store your certification forms

It is important to keep a copy of certificates you issue for your own records/protection. Completing certificates online as PDFs has the added advantage that they can be electronically filed in a practising licence holder’s Board file. The Board’s certificate store is free of charge and negates the need for the certificates to be kept for seven years.

  1. Prepare your certificate as above.
  2. Log in to Electrical Workers Login(external link) using your RealMe® login details.
  3. Select "My COC/ESC" from the list on the left hand side of the screen.
  4. Select Stored Certificates.
  5. Choose and upload your file.

Equipment compliance certificates

Equipment compliance certificates are available from the online store only in books of 50. They are for use in voluntary compliance scenarios. These self-adhesive certificates are credit card sized and can be affixed to the equipment item.
